[jira] [Commented] (GROOVY-8380) Regression in 2.4.13 (snapshot) 62615249161b233b1827d5950671d3a83007cd9f

Paul King commented on GROOVY-8380:
-----------------------------------

It's not clear to me if this is a bug.

Dynamic Groovy does not match that constructor in 2.4.12 due to possible loss of precision (and I tried numerous versions back to 1.8.9 with the same result):
{noformat}
groovy.lang.GroovyRuntimeException: Could not find matching constructor for: java.lang.Long(java.math.BigDecimal)
{noformat}
Perhaps we need an error message indicating possible loss of precision as the cause.

Static Groovy also rejects: {{Long foo = 5 / 3}} but dynamic Groovy accepts this.

Anyway, let's see what others think.
